Magdalena, Baltimore, MD

Magdalena Restaurant Review:

Baltimore’s historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood is home to The Ivy Hotel, a boutique property, and also the restaurant Magdalena. At its entrance, the fine dining establishment boasts a striking mural of a raven-haired beauty dressed in black with one hand in the air, possibly grasping castanets, and the other, holding up her skirt with the white material billowing out: this must be Magdalena, or artist Kim Parr’s interpretation. The light floors and hallways are a pathway to five distinct dining areas, from the Garden Room and Bar overlooking the Courtyard, to the Wine Cellar, Tasting Room and Treasury. One look at the wine room and the extensive wine list and oenophiles will be challenged with choices from around the world and the best of the U.S. vintages. Head chef Scott Bacon is a contemporary and classically trained chef. He aims to unite culture, tradition and sophistication to create dishes full of character.
